Wintering at this spot means no great global views of Endeavour and of the surrounding plains until the end of 2014/beginning of 2015...
I thought they were to climb a little higher (white dot on image herewith) to get some spectacular views while spending a long time wintering at the same spot.


I don't think that the < 12th Dec (Station 5) is necessarily the spot for the whole winter. With such a large expanse of northern facing slopes I was under the impression that Oppy would inch her way up Solander Point rather than staying in one place. They want to be at that location before 12th December but could easily be up near your dot by the end of winter. smile.gif

Yeah, that's what I thought. The "rove through winter" concept was mentioned in this TPS update, and may have been mentioned elsewhere.

It looks to be around the right size according to this recent comparison image from NASA:
[attachment=30737:pia17351_640.jpg]


where did that comparison image come from? The size comparison to the Earth's moon looks quite a bit different from the version on the JPL site (www.jpl.nasa.gov/images/msl/20130815/pia17351-640.jpg):

The one that walfy posted was taken down and replaced later with the version you just posted. See discussion of that here.

Thanks jamescanvin and CosmicRocker for your explanations. I feel really better... for outreach purposes of course ! smile.gif

Many nice images of late, many rendering wonderfully in 3D. Such desolate, ancient objects! And we can almost touch them. That big rock up close from Sol 3405:
